Chapter- 26 : Control Of Indriyas-1.
1.Indriyas, A Prolongation Of The Mind-1.
Indriyas are objectified desires. Will to see is the eye. Will to hear is the ear.
The Indriyas (senses) have two states, static and dynamic. When the desire begins to operate, the Indriyas are put in motion.
This is the dynamic state. As soon as the desire is gratified, the Indriyas shrink through Tripti (satisfaction). This is the static or passive state.
Mind and Indriyas are one. Indriya is a prolongation of the mind.
The sea is fed by the rivers; the sea cannot exist without the rivers.
Even so, mind is fed by Indriyas and cannot exist without Indriyas.
If you have controlled the Indriyas, you have already controlled the mind. Indriya is another name for mind.
